The alternate name for the peninsula is “Iceland in Miniature” due to the name of national sights situated in the area. This includes the popular tourist destination, Snæfellsjokul Volcano, considered as one of the treasures of Iceland.

The volcano is the tallest mountain on the site and has a glacier at its crest.  Fun fact:  People who have read the book, “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” will be excited to know that this was the setting for the book.

On the northern shore of the peninsula, you can also see some small towns and villages such as Hellnar, Arnarstapi, Grundarfjörður, Rif, Búðardalur, Stykkishólmur, and Ólafsvík.
